Several months ago, the first staff member at AIS Egypt – Main Campus tested positive for COVID-19. The human impact reverberated throughout the school as contact tracing began. In a profound act of courage and selflessness this educator said to use her name, in communication to the community, as a way of mitigating the stigma around contracting the virus. As hindsight brings clarity to much of the human experience, this act set the tone of how AISE as a community would address future positive cases. By giving permission to use her name others followed suit. Instead of suspicious glances, staff felt empowered by the support they knew they would receive when bad news came. Sometimes a few simple words bring a community together in support of each other. AISE – Main is proud to have Ms. Mary as a part of the family, and is even happier that she has fully recovered and rejoined the school. Ms. Mary has made the community happier, healthier and safer.
